Amazing fresh, delicious food served with a smile in a cute place. Don't let the strip mall location deter you. Home-made breakfast and lunch specials that are off the wall great!

We just left here after eating a wonderful breakfast. Service was prompt and the food was fantastic. We both had the #1 which included eggs, meat, home fries, pancakes/waffles and coffee. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this to other tourists.

Great spot for breakfast before heading off to a day at Acadia. My wife had the oatmeal and coffee. I had the campfire cakes. They are two buttermilk pancakes with your choice of either bacon, sausage, or ham baked right in. I went with bacon,...and it was crispy and abundant (bacon in every bite!). Prices are reasonable and service was friendly and attentive. Saw home fries and corn beef hash going to other tables that looked delicious. I’d definitely try them on a return visit.More

This is a place where locals go, but there were definitely several of us tourists there too. I have a severe gluten intolerance, but usually as long as there is bacon and eggs, then I'm okay. 😉 The friendly server was good to check for...me to ensure my food was safe. We had a good meal with plenty of food.More

We had lunch and breakfast here. Both were large portions and good. The service wasn't the best but not terrible either. Just a good solid meal both times. Note, you have to use the strip mall bathroom - yuck both times!

Awesome Breakfast, Delightful Staff - all the YUM! We went to breakfast while my husband worked out at Cross Fit. He sure did feel like a sad panda - but we brought him a burrito omelette that our waitress timed perfectly. My daughter had a...pancake as big as her head that she devoured. Two adults had omelettes with toast and home fries. Cooked perfectly with just the right veggie/meat/ cheese ratio. Our third adult had the scrambler and he said it was the best thing he ate all day. To be fair - it was so good and filling - we didn’t really eat the rest of the day as we hiked about Acadia some. For sure - give it a go. It’s perfection, homey and everything you didn’t know you needed.More

We wanted to get a good breakfast before heading home from Acadia and this place did not disappoint. The pancakes were excellent- good flavor and lots of blueberries. The eggs were done perfectly. Excellent coffee as well.
